rTorrent Color Schemes
This page lists color themes submitted by rTorrent users running one of the many color patches available.
A colored ncurses interface improves the user experience a lot, especially when you shun the overhead and slowness of common web UIs. Consider this example:
The following sections contain settings for different kind of patches, of course they only work if you actually applied them. Please include a screen shot that ideally shows all the color combinations in a small screen estate, to keep the page readable — or use thumbnails.
rTorrent-PS is a rTorrent distribution including an extensive color patch and other UI patches. You can use the following code on a terminal to dump a color scheme:
for i in $(rtxmlrpc system.listMethods | grep ui.color. | grep -v set); do echo $i.set = $(rtxmlrpc -r $i | tr "'" '"') ; done
If you want to replay such a scheme from the outside via rtxmlrpc, to try it out, use this:
rtxmlrpc import '' $PWD/color_scheme.rc
2.1. rT-PS: Official default (16 colors)
2.2. rT-PS: Official 256 color scheme in Gnome terminal
2.3. rT-PS: 8 color scheme for badly configured terminals
If you can't get past the your terminal only supports 8 colours error message on startup, then try this color scheme using only basic colors.
